Paying With the Wave of a Cellphone

"I don't want a facebook/twitter update of what I bought and where, every time I shop."

Strangely enough, I know enough people who do this by themselves. A Cousin of mine can't even stop for gas without posting about it on his facebook page along with a few cell phone pictures of his car, the station and surrounding area. It's ridiculous what kind of information people will willingly give up for the sake of social networking novelty.

Holy shit!!

Trollificus Trollificus writes  |  more than 11 years ago For the first time in what has to be a few years at least, I am able to metamoderate again. And a quick glance at my karma tells me that I am also in the positive.

Either this is a new low for slashdot, or a few people have started taking me serious. ;)

I guess this is no small feat, considering that I was once at -110 karma. But that was before the Slashdot crew rigged the karma system, no doubt to their own benefit!(eerie conspiracy music).

So, I notice Jon Katz hasn't posted since sometime last year. I guess the whole Junis fiasco was a bit too much for him.
Does anyone have any idea what happened? I see he is still listed in the Author section, so I doubt he got fired.
Maybe he was so distraught over the backlash against his Junis story that he decided to fly to Kabul in a vain attempt to find Junis and redeem his journalistic integrity(isn't that an oxymoron?).
